analyst jim walsh joins me here in a very chilly boston at this hour. gentlemen, we've been talking about this, you know, off and on this evening about the fbi. whether they dropped the ball. and a lot of monday morning quarterbacking going on. lou, to you in new york. it's too soon to tell, but there was certainly -- the fbi will certainly have to answer some questions after the older brother took a trip to russia and no one really followed up on that, lou. >> yes, i agree with you, don. i think there are some questions that need to be answered in the proper forum. i do think director muller and administrators of the fbi that had knowledge of the heads up they received from the russian government, sfb, their intelligence group, they'll have to explain exactly what transpired here and answer as to why they did or didn't do things. >> jim, it is bloelieved, everye has said they believe the brothers acted alone. is it too soon to tell? considering as much firepower they had and how some people thought they planned this out. >> yes. >> could there be someone else out there? >> i'm glad you a
analyst mr. jim walsh. he joins me here in boston. >> cold boston. >> everyone is asking me, is it that cold in boston? it is. >> you're clearly not a native new englander. you picked a bad spot. >> we're in a wind tunnel. i'll ask you since we are here talking. did the fbi drop the ball in interviewing the older tsarnaev brother? >> i mean at a very simple level, based just on the outcome you would have to say yes. he interviewed him and he went on to commit an act. but i don't think we have the full answer here yet. what was the process that they followed? the fbi interviews a ton of folks every year. only a fraction of which are actually dangerous. they interview me when i go to aroon and north korea and come back. but obviously either they -- he fell through the cracks or at the time that they were interviewing him they weren't giving him anything actionable to continue his case. >> but, lou, he did visit russia, stayed there for six months. you feel the fbi dropped the ball? >> i'm not going to rush to judgment on this. i think we're going to have hearings where directo

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: little titillating. i had a dinner party saturday night and it had more to do with -- jacki, we all partied a little hardy. it was a big slumber party. >> very responsible in l.a. if you're going to consume too many adult beverages to make the decision not to drive so that's what we did. lucky enough, stephanie has a home that's decorated like a bed and breakfast and you can pick your room. >> stephanie: exactly. just saying. not what you thought. >> would you like the naked marilyn photograph room. would you like the country breakfast room? >> stephanie: all right. anyway, i was trying to get jim's attention. good morning jacki. thank god it was a slow "newsweek" last week. >> we have lily tomlin today. >> stephanie: here's jacki schechner. >> happy monday. governor deval patrick is asking massachusetts residents

. let's bring in retired atf special agent in charge, nbc news analyst jim cavanaugh. jim, it's, it's a changing situation. but certainly it is a dramatic scene. it almost looks like a war zone, streets empty, we don't know how many officers are on the scene. but the tension seems to be remarkably high. there's some thought that perhaps dzhokah tsarnaev is holed up and is being negotiated with at this point. >> alex, that's exactly right. you know when you're in command of a situation like this, i always like to break it down to the main things that handle the main crisis points and address those. and there's three interlocking rings here that are affecting boston and the citizens. and that's what the commanders have got to focus on. one is the standoff with dzhokhar, we can talk about how that interlocks and what's going on there. the second is, the placement of another pressure cooker device in the city that they've located. and the question of are there more. and then the third interlocking circle is, whether or not there's these two accomplices, as pete williams described and ma
:30 eastern, we're going to talk to cnn international security analyst jim walsh about what tsarnaev is apparently communicating to investigators to his hospital bed. meanwhile there's a lot of other news going on. let's go back to new york for that. >>> there is. developing story, an alleged plot to attack a train between canada and the united states. police also say the planned attack was real but that the public was never in danger. they last r also say the suspects had support from al queda in iran. ted rolawlands is live with us. >> good morning. the latest these two suspects will be appearing in i a toronto court later this morning. the 30-year-old was brought here from montreal. he will join the 35-year-old working out of toronto according to canadian authorities. authorities say they had these two under surveillance for a number of months and made the arrest yesterday. they did not say why they made the arrest at that time but they did, as you mentioned, make a point to tell the public that these two were never close, pulling off what they were trying to pull off. however, th
declared disaster areas in more than 40 counties. cnn's jim spellman is in illinois where the river has been overflowing since sunday and residents they are they're preparing for even more water. >> the last thing they want to hear about here is another inch of rain coming. i'm not sure it will really make a huge difference. but take a look. two blocks in from the water and it's inundated here a foot up at the edge. three or four feet there at the worst. we haven't seen widespread reports of this kind of damage, but here in spring bay, it's having a huge impact. take a look. last minute prep in spring bay, illinois, as floodwaters inundate this riverside community. where is your home? >> my home is that gray and white mobile home with the black shutters on it. >> you can't get to your home by foot now? >> no. >> have you ever seen this much water come up here? >> no. >> scary? >> yep. >> the home, along with about 40 others in this trailer community, began to flood sunday and the water has continued to rise. >> yesterday i cried all day. >> reporter: and today? >> today i'm not crying y
tsavraev, at the request of the russian government. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta joins us from washington now with what's going on. a lot of frustration, a lot of what ifs, could if this boston magnificent y massacre been prevented? those are the questions that will be brought forward today. >> that's right, wolf. it will be playing out on capitol hill. the senate intelligence committee has set a hearing for 2:30 this afternoon with fbi officials, they will be the lead briefers at this hearing. i'm told from a source of that committee. lawmakers want to find out if federal investigators somehow failed to see big red flags coming from tamerlan tsavraev. as lawmakers are praising authorities for the quick work in the boston bombing case, members of congress are still calling for hearings, into the fbi's handling of dead suspect tamerlan tsavraev, who traveled back to a dangerous region of russia, just last year. >> what did he do, when he went back for six months? sit in his aunt and uncle's home for six months or doing something else? and when he came back to this countr
have a number of reports this morning. to begin we hear from john miller and then jim axel rod. to begin we hear from john miller and then jim axel rod. >> reporter: it was a week of images, both frightening and inspiring. the chaos of a terrorist attack and the heroism of the response. in erie videos from security cameras we saw brothers tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev allegedly on the way to place the bombs. and then the gripping 28-hour manhunt. there was an ambush that left a young police officer dead. and a gun battle that left a transit police officer badly wounded and ended the life of tamerlan tsarnaev. dzhokhar tsarnaev, his younger brother, was lost spotted in this infrared photo hiding inside a boat as the drag net closed in around him. his f.b.i. wanted poster now marked captured is the image that puts to a close the first chapter in the story of the boston marathon bombing. and so the next chapter opens with nothing but questions. questions posed by the president himself. >> why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country re
and come along with him. in a relationship like this, and jim can talk about the d.c. sniper, but you usually have an older or dominant individual and a younger one who's a follower. that could very well be the case with these two brothers also. >> clint, they're more likely to be able to i guess the person who's trying to do the influence can do so if they're in more of a vacuum. not being reached out to by other family members. they were living in a very isolated manner on their own. >> what bothers me is they come to this country as refugees. they claim that status. and then turn and ause that against us. it's always that the very best nature, the very best that's in us, in the united states, is turned around and used, weapon, against us, by those who would do us harm. >> it's interesting, you talk about that. the family was granted legal permanent residence march of 2007, became naturalized citi n citizens on the anniversary of 9/11 just last year. there certainly seems to be irony in that. with regard to the potential bombs, explosive devices that are planted around boston, is t
're negotiating with him or make contact with him or just simply trying to wait him out? >> as jim kavanagh said, there is a standard procedure to deal with a situation like tat and you look at it in terms of a hostage situation. ultimately and ideally, they want to bring this person out alive. they want to minimize any potential loss of life. so, if they have isolated him in a place where they have high confidence that they have a secure perimeter, then they'll take as long as necessary to try to get him to surrender, if, in fact, that's the case right now. >> in about seven minutes the president is going to get a direct briefing from robert mueller, they're both headed to the white house in less than ten minutes. i want to bring in cliff van zandt former fbi profiler. clint, you've been hearing everything. my apologies there. you have been hearing everything about learning more and more little bit about who these brothers are. what kind of profile would you be putting together right now? >> well, number one, we all have to admit it is amazing to get this much information this quickly. you look
to go to jim acosta who has breaking news having to do with the social media presence of at least one of the suspects. are you there? what have you learned? >> reporter: well, jake, as you know our staff has been going through the tweets that have been sent out from what appears to be the twitter account for dzhokhar tsarnaev. let's just put up this tweet onscreen if we have it. this is what was posted on this account back on august 10th of 2012, quote, boston marathon isn't a good place to smoke tho. that's the end of the quote. there you can see the twitter account on screen. we don't know much more about that. the broader context of this conversation is not known. but as we've been reporting all day there have been a number of tweets from this account that have raised some interest. one that was posted just in the hours after the bombing in boston on monday that said something along the lines of ain't no love in the heart of the city. stay safe, people. then two days later, i'm a stress free kind of guy. so obviously the social media behavior and activity of this suspect is becomin
30 victims who were missing a limb. abc's jim avila reports on how this tragedy unfolded. >> reporter: two hours after the winners crossed, 4:09 into the race, the amateur runners still filling boston's boylston street, two rapid-fire explosions at the finish line. >> something just blew up! [ explosion ] >> run! go! >> reporter: turning the cherished boston marathon into what one hospital official called a war zone. >> i crossed the 26-mile marker and i saw the first explosion happen. there was some commotion. i saw a fire and smoke. and i didn't know what it was. and then from about me to where that gentleman is standing over there, i literally saw the garbage barrel explode. i saw the flash, the fire, the smoke, and i just ran as fast as i could. >> reporter: cameras were rolling from many angles as the force of the blast actually knocks over at least within of the marathoners. look again. most of the injuries, though, suffered by spectators who came to celebrate the finish. >> a bomb went off. and it knocked me to the ground. and then, you know, everybody started running, panickin
thing in the world can happen to a city and dumb sportscasters will go, three hours, jim, this city forget there was a nuclear blast. >> something different was going on there. >> here, it can only happen in boston because boston is a one sports team town. at the end of the day, the sox that pull the entire team together. >> fenway. >> and fenway, the cathedral to a city. it had to be an amazing day there. >> it was. it was an amazingly emotional afternoon. it was a cathartic moment. a baseball game happened to have been played but it was if a tiny basilica on the back bay and the region was attracted to it. the suspected suspect had been successfully captured the evening before. neil diamond called the red sox switchboard. >> are you kidding me? >> called the red sox switchboard and said i'm in town, my name is neil diamond. i'd like to come and sing the song and he showed up. >> wow. >> to the surprise -- >> which, of course, people are watching that don't know, that's been a tradition. >> yeah, for a long, long time, many years. middle of the eighth inning, they sing it. >> it's
's jim dickey has some answers. >> good morning, john, diana. tracking a cold front. pushing eastward, seeing soaking rainfall this morning across portions of the midwest. and snow in the ohio valley, and snow in the twin cities, into wisconsin. back on into denver. good news is the snow does wind down but not before many spots have picked up as much as 6 to 12 inches of snow, twin cities area up into canada. this is while we are seeing soaking rainfall here. many of the spots. river levels fall from record levels. flash flooding, major concern where the rain is falling. but all of the rain, all of the floodwater continues to filter down the mississippi. many spots southward still watching the rivers rise. widespread major flooding ongoing here through the week. john and diana, back to you. >> jim, thank you. >>> to boston now where top officials have kicked off fund raidsing. efforts for the victims of the marathon bombing. >> that's right. the one fund boston has already gotten $1 million commitment from the john hancock insurance company. you can see the number one prominently on t
of estimates as asian demand for its software dropped. still, in an interview with cnbc earlier, co-ceo jim hagueman sounded confident that growth in the asia pacific region was still solid. >> in asia, we have had now 13 consecutive quarters of double digit growth. 12, actually. this is the first time we have an issue in asia. what that means is you have an organization that has been growing rapidly. with that comes new demand on leadership. we have been make something changes. in q1 we had a couple of key countries where we were looking for the leadership to take this organization to the next level. that's why it's impacting q1. but if i look at the pipeline and the business out there, we have a very, very solid business also in asia pacific. >> they also said revenue from sap's cloud technology division was a bright spot in the report, jumping 380% from a year earlier. he responded to speculation the company might make its cloud service private, as well. >> we do see what cloud does for our customers is it radically simplifies complexity. running global supply chains is not ease or realt
keeper. the married love guff, patronizing $1,000 an hour hookers. jim mcgreevey, appointing his gay lover to a public job. at the opposite end is golf champ tiger woods, another married traveler in the wild woman fast lane who, hit bottom. but his dazzling athletic talent made the difference, so he's back winning tournaments again. in this spring season of hope, the comeback spotlight has landed on three hopeful men, all of whom had trouble with extra curricular women. these are the masters of the universe, whose hunger for attention is so enormous that we peons must accept their urchghtuous apologies and reward them with the intrinsically american second chance. anthony weiner is such a man, rawly ambitious, obnoxious with a lean and hungry look of a roman assassin. the new york times sanctioned his comeback effort with an approving profile, featuring his wife, a close assistant to hillary clinton. less than two years ago, mr. weiner, a seven-term congressman from new york, was caught sending lewd messages to young women, along with pictures of his excited self in underwear. logica
, jim. >> we can go a couple of different directions here, we can talk about the man hunt where it is and how it's dwell developing or the geopolitical, what are you most interested in? >> in the first hand, the law enforcement will peck up the known suspect, possible third man involved hopefully without further loss of life. they're obviously extremely dangerous, armed with both firearms as well as possibly bombs. the chechen connection is very interesting. i'm sure right now they're on the phone with the russians and what they have with this family or their connection. are they being mentored or encouraged by terrorists in the country? the russians have had a terrible time with the chechens over the years, but the march with the double suicide bombing on the moscow subway killed 40 people. in november 2009 there was another train bombing that killed 26. so this has been a very dangerous, islamic region, not just chechnya, but also the north caucasus countries. i should also add that we have a lot of these people in both afghanistan and pakistan, foreign fighters and the cheche
or it was something else that caused them to snap. >> [ inaudible ]? >> stephanie: jim is just throwing something out. >> i don't blame the holocaust on christianity. it was christians who stopped the holocausts. and i have met many muslims who are ashamed of this. >> stephanie: we're reading again, david, as you have been reporting all morning, officials are worried that suspects may have hidden other explosive de devices. and he is still described as on the run. and things are still very very tense in boston. >> yeah, still on the run, and strong suspicions that he might have a suicide vest or belt on. so when the time comes maybe he tries to take out as many people as possible. and that's why police are saying stay inside, there is no public transportation, but just to be careful, and also because this kid -- who the suspect that survived was a student of umass dartmouth, so umass dartmouth is closed today. they are asking for any help -- granted this kid's photo has been splashed all over the place for the last 24 hours, so there shouldn't be anybody more recognizable than
, they may have done it there or may have had a region, a quantum leap there, as jim was talking about, where will you develop those bomb-making skills? you don't go to m.i.t. to learn,build pressure cooker bombs, do you go to the caucuses, do you go to that area of the world where these devices have been used successfully to attack humanity for year upon year upon year. so i think that six-month period, the russians help us in that we may be able to identify who he was working with and gone to perhaps some type of terroristic training, bomb making school. realize the two brothers set some place. they built multiple pressure cooker bombs, built these hand-held devices. they did a lot. we have had fwhoermts u.s. try to blow their underwear up, try to blow their shoes up, try to blow their car up and they weren't successful, thank god. >> you think this goes beyond what they could pick up on the internet? >> i do i do. i think somebody sitting over their shoulder neath needed to be done. i don't think it was looking a this the seven or eight-page manual you could pull out of inspiration the al
olympics bombing investigations. good morning to you. >> reporter: hello. this is jim, how are you? >> thank you for joining us. big issue this morning. can you or how do you begin to take the suspect alive? you do. >> boston should feel good. the coward number two is probably barricaded there in his own home. the third person that was apprehended could be the relative that they were talking about that might have made some threats. the key issue with the bar is for the tactical commander is whitehead number two alone or is he there with another person. that's what you will want to find out. you're setting up the perimeter for the tactical teams. i've been watching a live feed it's state police, s.w.a.t., police srt which is atf s.w.a.t. and all of these team, you have the city police s.w.a.t., all of these teams have the tactical agents with the armored vehicle and they're all equipped similarly,
